Title: Powder coating as substrate for epoxy bonding of vibration isolation mounts

Abstract: A method of producing a vibration isolation mount assembly comprising at least one metal bracket member bonded to a volume of a resilient elastomeric material. The bonding of the elastomeric material to the metal bracket is improved by electrostatically spraying the metal brackets with an epoxy coating prior to adhering the rubber to the metal bracket members, but after vulcanization of the rubber material.
